    Vote - Your favourite Walkabout song (round 1)

    Vote for your favourite song on Walkabout.

    Please note that although Rediscover is not on Walkabout it would very likely appear on a Walkabout reissue if that ever happens.

    Also please note that the hidden track "Do What You Can" will appear on the poll for Missing Links.

    This is a really tough one cause all the songs are awesome, but I have to go with Camphor. It's got just an unbeleivably cool vibe.

    built for the future. . .

    a sound of things to come from the Fixx. . . I like them all though!

    Camphor

    Chase The Fire is a very close second. Very close.

    Real tough one this for Walkabout, probably my favourite Fixx album, as im sure its a common fav with alot of us Fixxers. For me its got to be One Look Up, its the one track that doesnt show up on too many lists and its a superb track.

    "Secret Separation" slightly edges out "Camphor" and "Built For The Future" for me. There is something about this song that makes me smile whenever I hear it. I will have to sit down and figure out why that is but it happens.

    Another really difficult one here! Camphor wins for me, for the lyrics and Rupert's fantastic keyboards...They give the song its brilliant surreal edge.

    Sense the Adventure

    It was either this tune or Walkabout. But, I've let my Pagan out, so I went with Adventure. GREAT song.

    I voted for Read Between the Lines, but I have to ask this:

    Is there anyone else out there, or just me, who doesn't like Secret Separation? I haven't liked it since the first time I heard it back in 1986 and my opinion hasn't changed much since. Somehow, it doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the album, at least to me. Maybe it just seems a bit too campy...

    So many great songs! "Read Between the Lines" edges out "Walkbout" and "Can't Finish" for me!

    Hi Steve: I voted for "Can't Finish", which edged out "Walkabout" and "Secret Separation." This album is a work of genius. A lot to like about every track on there. John

    I know it is tough to pick just one as Crucified mentioned on the Ink thread. So hard to narrow down.
